CECE Pushing EU On Digitalisation

Calling for strong political leadership from the EU, an appropriate regulatory framework on data policy and budgetary focus on digital skills, R&D and IT infrastructure, CECE and most of the major European construction industry associations have joined forces to draft and agree on “The European Construction Industry Manifesto for Digitalisation.

Smarter Construction, Stronger Economy, Inclusive Society: The European Construction Industry Manifesto for Digitalisation can be found here.

CECE is the Committee for European Construction Equipment, represents the interests of 1200 construction equipment manufacturers through national trade associations in 13 European countries: Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Sweden, Finland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Russia and Turkey.

The construction industry can help build a stronger economy and an inclusive society by sustaining its competitiveness on the global stage. Speaking on the Manifesto, CECE Secretary General Riccardo Viaggi said: “Digitalisation of the construction equipment sector has been a key priority for CECE. We recognize the importance of working in a value chain approach and, as the Manifesto reads, all industry representatives pledge to collaborate intensively, to lead and support the industry in order to enable a successful digital transformation of the construction industry”

The European Construction Industry Manifesto for Digitalisation underlines the importance of an effective regulation to ensure sector’s competitiveness and adoption of the digital transformation. “European construction industry is already adjusting to the digital transformation, however the support from the EU policymakers is crucial” Viaggi said.

An appropriate regulatory and financial framework at the European level is needed to enhance the forward-looking strategy. The policy makers need to prioritize this initiative within Horizon Europe, which will follow the Horizon 2020 framework. Anticipating its new focus, the construction sector uniting its voice urges the European Commission to focus the framework program on digitizing Europe’s construction sector to strengthen its industrial competitiveness and global leadership.
